, shooting, columbine right through the mall in oregon last week, really, nothing has been done. and i don't blame people for being angry, and i hope-- and i believe i see the ging of a different reaction here in washington displood you've called fair national commission. the president today is organizing, announcing a task force. is that what you have in mind? and narkts as you say, again, the residents of newtown on our program last night were saying it's-- you know, every time there's been a shooting in the past, they said something was going to be done. >> right gloodz it wasn't done. >> yeah. >> woodruff: they said we want something done now. >> i don't blame them. look, my feeling is the president by executive action, congress as soon as it can, should do whatever it can do quickly to make it less likely that something like the shootings in newtown will happen again. obviously, i'm talking now about additional gun control laws. i would vote today to restore the assault weapon bans. these are military weapons. there's no need for them for target and hunting. if you buy a gun from a fe

, texas, minnesota, south dakota, nevada, and oregon are open to arming teachers. >> what i'm suggesting is that we have campus responders. two or three volunteers that are on the staff, whether administrators or teachers or staff members. hopefully maybe prior military or prior law enforcement. but people who are trained who will be armed and when the first shot is fired on the next campus they can respond and meet lethal force with lethal force. >> the liberal blog site mother jones did a two-month investigation on this very topic. it found more guns doesn't equal fewer mass shootings. it points out, quote, america now has 300 million firearms, a barrage of nra-backed gun laws and record casualties for mass killers. the site quits dr. stephen hargarten at the medical college of wisconsin. he says, quote, armed civilians attempting to intervene are actually more likely to increase the bloodshed given that civilian shooters are less likely to hit their targets than police in these circumstances. even police officers aren't expert marksmen in the heat of battle. remember the chaotic scene

-15 can do. it it was used in sandy hook, the shooting in the oregon mall shooting, young men got their hands on the assault rifles. they're the nearest thing to an m-16 machine gun. these are military weapons. i heard christiane amanpour saying earlier, thshe sees thes on the battlefields, why should they be in the u.s., walked into our malls, our movie theaters, elementary schools? i hear you. wasn't to a i want to ask you one more thing. people say blame the media. the reason why these mass murders continue is because the media glorifies these shooters. i have my own thoughts. what are yours? >> i just couldn't agree less. because the point is you have to highlight what happens here and you have to learn from it. you have to learn how this disturbed young man living in this home, was he obsessed with video games, was it due to a new obsession with guns because his mother took him to a firing range, was it because his mother was apparently about to commit him to a psychiatric treatment? who knows what it was? was it his mental health? here is the thing. if he didn't have the gun
